1965-68 US Army Infantry morter team leader,; 1968 went to Army Aviation School, Ft Rucker, Al. 1968-69 RVN: Helicopter Air Crew ( Hueys ). Also spent 5 years as a recruiter, now retired from the Army.
Bruce explains: " I guess you would say that my position was
unique. I had hands on with all the main actors, and worked directly with
each director of each episode. I was also very involved on aviation days
involving the helicopter and the crew. ( military aspects )
In addition, I actually took part in various episodes
I had to keep in mind what the veteran would see, but also focus on what the camera would pick up. Blending the two was a challenge.
I was the assistent technical advisor season 2 & 3. 1988-90. and I had the opportunity to actually tech advise two episodes on my own.
In the photo of me with Stephen: I doubled for the actor in a re-take of a scene going through bamboo. Stephen and Terry were in the scene.
Malcolm Jamal Warner.. ("The Volunteer"). We really had a great week together.
I did everyhing from tech advise to double work to semi-stunt work in the helicopter."
